Legacy ER & Urgent Care, one of the nation’s first hybrid healthcare models offering both urgent care and emergency room treatment options under one roof, is set to open a location in Keller. Located at 1220 Keller Parkway, it is Legacy’s third North Texas ER and urgent care center. Legacy is headquartered in Plano with healthcare centers in Allen and Frisco. The Keller location, which is the only facility of its kind in the city, will begin seeing patients October 8.
“Keller is a great community, and we’re excited to be able to bring our hybrid healthcare model there. Now Keller residents won’t have to choose between a stand-alone ER or an urgent care facility. With Legacy, they’ll have the best of both worlds – top-rated, board-certified, emergency-trained physicians, state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment equipment and an ‘only pay-for-the-care-you-need’ in-network billing system,” said Keith Miller, president of Legacy ER & Urgent Care, in a press release.
Miller adds that Legacy ER & Urgent Care plans to do special events throughout the month of October to introduce the healthcare provider to the Keller community. These events include a wall dedication ceremony on October 18 with Taylor’s Gift Foundation, a national nonprofit organization headquartered in North Texas that seeks to increase awareness about organ donation and assist families who have been affected by that need; a ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Greater Keller Chamber of Commerce on October 29 followed by a luncheon honoring the city’s first responders; and finally, a grand opening celebration, which is free and open to the public.mThe grand opening will be October 31 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. It will include a costume contest, tours, face painting, a bounce house, food and more.
Urgent care hours are from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, and ER services are accessible 24-7. The typical wait time before being seen is less than five minutes. Online check-in is available and walk-ins are welcomed.
Founded in 2008, Legacy ER & Urgent Care is one of the nation’s first healthcare models to offer both urgent care and emergency room treatment options under one roof. It has built an exceptional customer service program and rating by providing transparent billing, soothing environments and one-on-one service with board-certified, emergency-trained physicians. Patients have access to immediate, on-site emergency room equipment and only pay emergency care prices when it is truly an emergency. For more information, visit LegacyER.com.
